Dalia gave an excellent tour. We had forgotten about the castle district part of the tour and we had already had a castle district tour but she made an excellent effort to find other things to tell us about that we hadn't already learned. The last hour of the tour of Hospital in the Rock was very interesting.

Our guide Eva was very informative and well-spoken. She was very courteous, friendly, and energetic in answering questions. She showed that she really cared about my wife and I having a great walking tour experience. We really enjoyed it.

Dalia is truly an amazing guide! She made our tour a truly unforgettable experience! Her tips and hints about locations and history beyond our planned program make us want to return to Budapest. Thank you, Dalia! Thank you GetYourGuide!
